Treat Yo’ Self: 7 Beauty Splurges To Make This Week
Spoil yourself silly with everything from your own skincare cocktail to a wand that promises to lift your lashes with a few zig-zag strokes. Intrigued?| March 24, 2017
This week, we’re all about the little things that go a long way. A super gentle exfoliator that rids stubborn scrappy spots with the easiest of ease, face lifts in a bottle, blushes and bronzers that only require a smidgen on your cheeks for full effect and a wand that lifts your lashes with a couple of zig-zag strokes. Don’t forget that final touch of leave-in conditioner to turn your hair from hay to heeeeeey. Below, our top beauty picks that we think you should splurge on this week.
Skin Inc Pure Revival Peel
The gentlest exfoliator we’ve ever come across, period. So gentle you can use it every night, and it still does the job of sloughing away the dead skin cells.
Skin Inc Vitamin A Serum
Think of it as vitamins for your skin – three drops in the morning, three drops at night. We don’t know how much of it is psychological, but we suspect this may have prevented our skin from breaking out during fashion week. The best part about this little gem is that you can mix it with other boosters to form your own skin cocktail. (Tip: We like the collagen and ceramide serums.)
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer
It’s hella expensive for a brow pencil, but that hasn’t stopped anybody. It’s winning quality? Easy and ultra-smooth application without giving you caterpillar brows. It also promises to stay on all day, but there’s always the primer to fall back on if you need extra insurance.
Natasha Denona Face Glow Cream Shimmer
We’ve tried numerous highlighters and this is still one of our all-time favourites. The glow is so beautifully natural. It’s pricey, but you really just need a little each time.
Surratt Beauty Artistique Blush
Okay, this one is quite wondrous. It starts out as a liquid, but slowly “melts” into a powder as you spread it on your cheek. We love this dusty peach-pink shade because it is right smack between a blush and a bronzer.
Hourglass Curator Lash Instrument
If Hourglass created a separate instrument just for applying mascara, then it must be able to work some kind of magic. This one’s completely bristle-free to ensure smooth root-to-tip coverage.
Show Beauty Riche Leave-In Conditioner
It is time to go beyond the dry shampoo. Show Beauty’s is essentially moisturiser for your hair, sans that icky, greasy and heavy feeling.
